    I also got the same e-mail and googled it to find out if it was ok or not. That is how I came to this website. But I did click on the link, they asked me to log in again into my e-mail account, but I did not do that. Is there a chance these people got access to my e-mail account or personal information? I know this conversation is already dated, but I do hope someone can still reply to me. Thanks!
